Integrated Concepts

In a laboratory experiment designed to duplicate Thomson's determination of q e / m e , a beam of electrons having a velocity of 6.00 × 10 7 m / s enters a

5.00 × 10 3 T magnetic field. The beam moves perpendicular to the field in a path having a 6.80-cm radius of curvature. Determine q e / m e from these observations, and compare the result with the known value.

To determine

  qeme from observations and then compare the result with the known value of qeme

Explanation

Given Data:

In a laboratory experiment designed to duplicate Thomson's experiment of qeme , a beam of electrons having a velocity of 6×107m/s enters a 5.00×103T magnetic field. The beam moves perpendicular to the field in a path having a 6.8cm radius of curvature

Formula Used:

Centripetal force is calculated as

  F=mv2r

Where F= Force on electrons in a magnetic field

  m= Mass of electrons

  v= Velocity of electons

  r= Radius

Also, magnetic force is calculated as

  Fmag=qvB

Where B= Magnetic field

  v= Velocity of electron

  q= Charge of electron

Calculation:

In Thomson's experiment, centripetal force is balanced by magnetic force.

Thus, we have

  qvB=mv2r

  qm=v2rvB

  qm=vrB

We have B=5
